Avacta is a company specialising in combining the disciplines of physics and biology to develop innovative techniques and services to address the needs of pharmaceutical, defence and clinical diagnostics. I was commissioned by Avacta to develop an automated machine for the analysis of blood samples. With the help of Avacta’s Electronics Engineers this machine was designed from scratch. It incorporates Linear slide rails, stepper motors, DC motors, solenoids etc. The internal mechanisms had to be of a very high accuracy and easily assembled due to high volumes. In addition I created Bill of materials for all manufactured and bought in hardware.
